Mother's Day Brunch Made By Hubby w/ @MLFConnects #Bacon Portions {Giveaway}


My husband loves his bacon.  When he discovered Maple Leaf Bacon Portions at the local grocery store, he thought it was the best thing ever.  Seriously, I've never seen a man more excited about a grocery purchase ever.

Maple Leaf Bacon Portions are a great idea - so you never waste bacon again. You can keep your bacon fresh for any time you need it. No more need for scissors or the knife to open the packaging, because it comes with easy-to-peel packaging!

When my husband told me about this amazing "easy-to-peel package" and "never waste bacon" concept, I laughed because...We NEVER waste bacon in this house! Bacon doesn't last long enough here with a husband and Little One who love their bacon! This said, I do think it's an ingenious invention because there are days when  you don't  need an entire HUGE package of bacon. The "portions" do come in handy!

Check out what my husband and Little One made me for Mother's Day Brunch!


I  have never seen a frittata this fluffy! It was delicious! I wanted to share the recipe with you, but it's my husband's secret recipe and he won't even share it with me! He did say that one of the most important ingredients is the Maple Leaf Portions! I think he cooked up the bacon in the cast iron skillet and then used the bacon grease to cook the frittata.


Isn't that gorgeous?

Here's a little video of my two loves. They're so cute! Shameless plug coming up...I made this video with my BlackBerry Z10's STORYMAKER! I love that feature!



Humour me for a second while I tell you a super cute story.

Listening to Hubby & Little One making lunch for "the moms" & fam. I was laughing so much, I was crying.

HUBBY: This is how we make a Frittata for Mother's Day.

LO: I know what a Frittata is! Hakuna Frittata! It's a wonderful thing. It means no worries for the rest of your life...

Isn't that hilarious?! My 4  year old cracks me up! I think we should hence forth call that frittata the Hakuna Frittata! Any Lion King fans out there? *sigh* You know you're a parent when...

If you check out the Maple Leaf Foods website, you can find lots of great recipes to make with bacon! Check out these Maple Bacon Waffles I made! I used maple syrup from our farm!

They were delicious! A definite keeper! I'll be making these again (and again).  The recipe is on the Maple Leaf website here.
